Angry Please don't support Alive and Well

This organization advocates a dangerous position that can lead to people not receiving appropriate treatment for HIV and AIDS. The organization may make some interesting points, however this is not just some academic discussion, peoples lives are at stake. Your support encourages people to make decisions about HIV and AIDS based on the incomplete and misleading information promulgated by Alive and Well. Not only does the organization advocate putting less research into HIV and AIDS, it asks people not to use condoms to protect against HIV and asks people with HIV and AIDS not to take their medication. That is dangerous advice and I believe your support of this organization is irresponsible.

And by the way, this may or may not belong in the political forum.

I don't believe that Dave's opinion on the subject is represented anywhere on the main site.

Still though, even for matters in which lives are at stake, if people had been afraid to bring up "interesting points" in the past, we might not have achieved some of the breakthroughs in medicine that we've already seen.

for one, this isn't a Foo-related topic (and it's not like you'd ever post here again). Secondly, Nate is one of at least four guys that pays for this site, and he has all the right to post whatever the heck he wants on it, whether any of us here want to support it or not.

I'm sure Alive and Well have some pretty good ideas about AIDS and HIV.

It's embarrassing that Foos have been affiliated with the organization, but what's the point of discussing anything with a one-post spammer, even if you agree with him?

It's Nate, not Dave, and it's their website so they can support what they want. You have the option to disagree but they have the right to support it and advertise it if they wish. They're not holding a gun to your head and insisting that you support it as well.

This is a Frequent Post Archive kinda issue. Over the years there have been many people (myself included) that this Alive and Well is wack.

Go there to continue to disuss this issue.
